Marlena Del Hierro VP of partnerships and commercial strategy at Seniorly, which is a resource for families looking for senior living options and seniors planning ahead. The Best of Senior Living Awards determined by Seniorly highlights the best 150 communities around the country based on feedback from families, senior living advisors, licensing reviews, and media searches that might reveal something problematic or terrific about a facility.  

Marlena explains, "We have an algorithm that then shares the top five to seven options for your loved one. So that's a unique piece, because of the data and the technology that we're constantly gathering from a variety of sources to help these families make the best decision for their loved ones." 

"The reason why we're doing these awards is that we should be pushing the envelope. The Baby Boomers are fundamentally challenging these senior living communities. And the awards are just a sense of preparing us for more of a modern era in senior living."
